Decision Made, Decision to Make :)

Thank you so much for everyone's help on Friday with deciding how to finish my Petite Point quilt!!!  It was funny, that the thing I thought the whole time I was making the quilt, is what majority of you thought I should do to finish it up.  I realized that this was a case of just staring at a project to long and then overthinking it.   I had some great advice on Instagram to just walk away from it for a day or two and then come back to it.   As soon as I saw it this morning, I realized (again) that I totally wanted all of the piecing to be the star and just needed to add a binding to do that.   So I found this beautiful deep red in my scrap drawer (yippee for more scraps busted!!!) and I think it is going to be the perfect finish.    With that decided, now I just need to decide how I want to quilt it, tee hee hee!!!

And this Peitite Point quilt has created another decision on a new quilt.   Once I had all my blocks laid out, I realized that it was going to be super easy to spin the blocks if I tried to do to much chain stitching to put it all together.   So I stacked up the blocks with the plan to stitch all of the triangles on each block before moving to the next block.  Which meant, I needed some Leaders and Enders!!!

I am still working on cutting out some more squares for this Leader and Ender project, but I remembered I had 3 Coney Island Treat packs which measure 3 1/2" and a stack of 3 1/2" white squares that I erroneously cut from another project.   Perfect match!!! 

 There was a ton of Leader and Ender sewing that went on to put Peitite Point together so I now have a stack of over 100 3 1/2" two-patches with only about 20 sets left to sew and I realized, I don't have a clue what to do with these now!!!   Of course, I can just sew them together postage stamp wise, but I just did that, and wanted to do something different with these.

Any suggestions on how I should use of these two patches??? I figured I have about a day left of sewing them and then a day to press them, and it will be time to decide :)  Don't you just love quilty decisions, talk about the best kind of happy decisions to make!!!

  1. Quilty decisions are definitely the best kind of decisions. How about making them into some sort of disappearing style block (9 patch is probably too late at this stage).

  2. There is a quilt design I have been considering which is just 4-patches with alternate print squares. I've seen it done with Civil War repros but it would be beautiful in any type fabrics. You could also do 4-patches and lay them out in a barn raising setting.

  3. Or you could make half square triangles and piece them in a courthouse pattern...


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
